Transcripts

Speaker:

Welcome back to The becoming the big knee podcast. I'm your host

Speaker:

Djemilah Birnie and you are tuning into minute madness a

Speaker:

little dose of epicness delivered in five minutes or

Speaker:

less.

Speaker:

Birnie, Birnie here, and today I want to talk to you about sleep

Speaker:

and getting a better night's rest. Before 2020. The average

Speaker:

amount of people suffering from clinical insomnia was about 10%.

Speaker:

over this past year, however, it has increased significantly, the

Speaker:

anxiety and the stress causes our brain to go over active and

Speaker:

crazy and many more people are suffering with insomnia. In

Speaker:

fact, a study in China by Lin and his associates suggested at

Speaker:

37% increase in clinical insomnia, that would be almost

Speaker:

50% of the population suffering from clinical insomnia. Due to

Speaker:

the stresses of this year. That's absolutely insane. So I

Speaker:

wanted to go over a couple of quick little sleep hacks a

Speaker:

couple of quick little sleep tips to help you fall asleep

Speaker:

faster, get a better night's rest and become more energized

Speaker:

for the next day by giving your body what it needs to survive.

Speaker:

So my first tip is, I've been talking about this one for a

Speaker:

while, no tech before bed, one hour before bed, giving yourself

Speaker:

that space for your mind to decompress, for you to think

Speaker:

about your day process things without extra stimulus. And

Speaker:

also, the blue light from the technology affects your body to

Speaker:

be able to produce melatonin, which is necessary for you to

Speaker:

fall asleep. The second suggestion would be something

Speaker:

warm before bed. So whether that's a nice decaffeinated tea,

Speaker:

or a nice warm shower or something to just get your body

Speaker:

a little bit warmer, starting to feel a little bit cozier helps

Speaker:

to relax your body after a highly stimulating day. And then

Speaker:

my third tip, I would suggest to some light stretching, just

Speaker:

moving the stagnant energy you get, whenever anything weird

Speaker:

happens, you kind of hold on to that energy in your body. So I

Speaker:

suggest just doing some light movement, some light stretching

Speaker:

to help release those energetic blockages, so that your energy

Speaker:

flows freely while you sleep. So you can actually wake up feeling

Speaker:

much more rested. And then obviously, I would have to

Speaker:

suggest either sleep meditation or sleep hypnosis. I use the I

Speaker:

use my own every single night, if you would like the sleep, get

Speaker:

to sleep sleepy time hypnosis to shoot me over a message and I'll

Speaker:

send you that it basically just something to connect your mind

Speaker:

to your body and start to relax. So you can focus on some other

Speaker:

words besides the mind chatter inside of your own head that's

Speaker:

causing you to go down a doubt unrolled, stressed out spiral.

Speaker:

And then my fifth tip would be routine, our bodies thrive on

Speaker:

routine. So maybe it's going to take a couple nights before you

Speaker:

can actually fall asleep faster. But if you start implementing

Speaker:

these tricks, no tack an hour before bed, something warm,

Speaker:

light stretching, and then a sleep hypnosis or a sleep

Speaker:

meditation before bed. And then you put that into a routine

Speaker:

where you do it consistently the same time every night. 10

Speaker:

o'clock, my phone goes off, no more phone, you know, after I

Speaker:

turn my phone off, then I'm going to do a little bit of

Speaker:

stretching, maybe some journaling. And then at

Speaker:

1011 is when I put on my hypnosis, whatever that might be

Speaker:

for you. So just getting the consistency showing up for

Speaker:

yourself. Every single night, your body will set into that

Speaker:

routine. These different tasks are going to become anchors and

Speaker:

trigger points for your body to start shutting down into the

Speaker:

rest zone. So try out these tips. Do it consistently for at

Speaker:

least a week and let me know how you feel.
